Fire-hit Walesby warehouse 'stored illegal waste'

A warehouse in Nottinghamshire was storing illegal waste when it caught fire, it has emerged.

The blaze on Oakfield Farm, in Forest Lane, Walesby, which started almost two weeks ago, is still giving off smoke.

Peter Haslock, of the Environment Agency, said: "We know that the site did not have a permit for waste activity and we believe the waste was involved in the fire."

An investigation into the fire is ongoing.
